Portia by Denise Turney
Portia is a journey through several generations of a family as perceived through the senses, emotions and memories of one of its courageous, insightful and non-crowd following members, Portia. The story realistically examines certain aspects of existence, perseverance and love between family members as well as the tenderness and affection which can only occur between soul mates. From a young lady coming of age to a career woman glimpsing her own mortality while confronting an uncertain future, Portia will tug on the reader’s heart strings all along the way.

“A Wonderful, Powerful Story”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Wanda E. Moorman
Denise Turney successfully captured the past, present and future all in one book. Her characters were well developed, and the story line was very touching. The strength of Portia was unbelieveable. She overcame a major obstacle in her life through her faith in God, love for her family, and the strength of her relationship with the man she loved.
Portia was about family and the importance of maintaining close family ties. Portia is a story I won’t forget!
